Hi Pam,
my liver enzymes are up the past two months going higher with each blood test. then blood test showed Hep A ab, Total Positive abnormal. I feel great and haven't been sick.

Hello,
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Usually liver enzymes goes down by 2 months in hepatitis A.
Though ultrasounds are good, as the enzymes are still high, doctor wants to see in details whether there is cirrhosis, growth or any other abnormality in the liver.
MRI can give more clear view than ultrasound.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
